Chef Program

Help us serve more families in need

We have had families back in the house for a few months now and are finally able to have volunteers back in the house.

THIS IS WHERE YOU COME IN! We need your help feeding our families who are caring for an ill or injured child at a nearby hospital!

Cookie Crew Program:

Our House smells like home when individuals or small groups bake cookies, brownies, and other treats in our kitchen.

Cook a Meal for Families Staying at the House:

Your favorite recipes can help take away the question of where families will get their next meal and allow them to give all their energy and attention to their hospitalized child. Through our Chef Program, individuals, civic groups, and organizations cook dinner for our guests. Chefs can even cook the meal in our kitchen to enhance our “home-away-from-home” atmosphere.

A few social distancing/COVID requirements are in place:

  1. All meals and baked goods must either be prepared at the Ronald McDonald House Northern Nevada, catered in from a restaurant, or prepared by a grocery store.
  1. All volunteers who wish to come to RMHCNN and cook/bake must be vaccinated.
  2. Only 2 volunteers are allowed in the RMHC kitchen at a time.

Dinner is served around 6 pm. You can prepare and cook food at whatever time works for you; then, staff will reheat the meal for families.
